Bio-Tech Firm PathSensors Announces New Universal BioSensor
July 13, 2016
Innovative Technology Makes It Easier, Less Expensive to Develop and Deploy High Sensitivity Bio Threat Detection Solutions. Multiple Applications in Food and Plant Safety, Medicine, Public Health, Homeland Security
Baltimore-based biotech firm, PathSensors, Inc., announced today the launch of its Universal BioSensor technology. Developed in partnership with the University of Maryland School of Medicine, the Universal BioSensor is a new bio threat detection platform that can use any existing antibody to rapidly develop tests for the presence of pathogens in environmental samples. The Universal BioSensor expands the range of biological agents that PathSensor’s CANARY® (Cellular Analysis and Notification of Antigen Risks and Yields) biosensor can detect and significantly reduces development time cycles and costs.
“CANARY® technology has been proven to be superior for bio threat detection in terms of sensitivity, speed of detection, low false alarm rate and ease of use; with the development of the Universal BioSensor, CANARY® now has advantages over alternatives in terms of the number of pathogens it can detect,” commented PathSensors' CEO, Ted Olsen. “In addition, the Universal BioSensor makes it faster and cheaper for us to quickly develop and deploy new bio sensors in response to new and emerging bio threats.”
